STOUGHTON/ANACORTES, WA
Alice E. Christensen was born November 16, 1907 in Morrisonville, WI and passed away in Anacortes, WA on December 11, 2012. When she as three years old her parents moved to Stoughton where she attended elementary school. She graduated from Stoughton High School in 1925. Alice attended Whitewater Normal School where she received her degree in education in 1927. She taught mathematics and English for 34 years in Brooklyn, Oregon, and Madison school districts; retiring in 1967. Alice was united in marriage to Ivan Christensen in 1936. After retirement they moved to Stoughton and spent many winters living in Mesa, AZ. She was a member of the Covenant Lutheran Church in Stoughton. In 2006 she moved to Anacortes, WA where she made many new friends. Alice enjoyed sports; she closely followed her husband's many accomplishments in bowling and golf, and she liked to follow the Badgers, Packers, and professional golf. Alice enjoyed cooking - especially Norwegian Christmas baked goods - and doing needlework. Perhaps her greatest joy was giving to others.

Alice was preceded in death by her husband, Ivan; two sisters, Irene Halverson and Mildred Hanson; and her brother, Donald Ethen. She is survived by her son, Nikolas Christensen, her daughter-in-law, Karen; two grandchildren, Kirk Christensen and Signe Sterner; two great-grandchildren, Kay and Carolyn Sterner; and several nephews and many friends.

Alice was loved by many in Wisconsin and Washington State and she will be greatly missed.

A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Friday, December 28, 2012 at Cress Funeral Home, 206 W. Prospect Ave, Stoughton. Alice's family will greet friends from 9 am until the time of service. Burial will follow in Riverside Cemetery, Stoughton.

When I began teaching in Oregon, Alice was there ready to be my mentor and friend. We had a busy full schedule in the old red brick building with temps often 90 degrees or more in winter. We shared students, we shared lunch, we shared the joys and woes of teaching, and we shared many many laughs. I have often thought of her all these years, and I am so thankful I had her in my life in those years. Now, I am retired and I can honestly think back to a long and happy and successful career, but those days when Alice and I taught English in Oregon are among my favorites. God rest her soul.
